Name: Amber Leigh
Car: Audi R8
City: Los Angeles
For Amber, racing isn’t just a hobby- it’s a lifelong dream. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Amber developed an appreciation for automotive at an early age. She remembers her dad taking his Ferraris out to the track in a fire-proof suit, watching him race, and thinking “this is so cool, I want to do this.”
As a teen, driving came to mean something even more to Amber- freedom. It started with sneaking out from under her strict grandmother’s watch to go to car events with friends (she recalls one memorable night when she accidentally triggered her home-security alarm trying to sneak out) and it soon became a true passion.
“Driving was always kinda a getaway for me… My Mom always wanted me to be this person I was never, so I just always used driving to get away- and I always felt like it gave me the freedom to. And when I was finally able to get the car that I have now, since I like going fast it just feels like a whole new escape.” Bambi is currently working towards her lifelong dream enrolled in racing school in Los Angeles.
